Could it BE Any Clearer?
"this war is not waged upon our part in any spirit of oppression, nor for any purpose of conquest or subjugation, nor purpose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States (I.E., SLAVERY!!!!!!!), but to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and to preserve the Union, with all the dignity, equality, and rights of the several States unimpaired; and that as soon as these objects are accomplished the war ought to cease." The United States House of Representatives, July 22, 1861.............How any sane person can still say that Lincoln and the North were motivated even remotely by the slavery issue when there own damn words repeatedly belie this claim is well beyond me.
